History of the Future


Published November 30, 2011


with Starhawk, Megan Prelinger, and Chris Carlsson. Megan Prelinger's book "Another Science Fiction" takes a whimsical look at how the Space Race was promoted during its heyday 1957-62, offering a pointed look into a twisted type of corporate "utopian" thinking that informed a whole generation. Meanwhile, Starhawk's "The Fifth Sacred Thing" and Chris Carlsson's "After The Deluge" both present alternative utopian futures for San Francisco a century or more in the future. Join the conversation with these three authors as they ponder utopias and dystopias, imagination and revolution, and the power of social movements and propaganda to shape different futures. (Unfortunately the recording failed between the introduction and near the beginning of the 2nd speaker, Chris Carlsson, so Megan Prelinger's presentation is not in this recording, though she does appear during the Q&A with the audience on several occasions. Our deepest apologies for this technical failure and resultant ommission.)
